I called and booked our tour 2 months in advance to make sure my family had a spot. There were 7 of us and we all wanted to be on the same boat so we were going to pay the extra money and have a private tour. We had it all set and were gonna be on a pontoon boat.... More

HIGHLY recommend using this dolphin tour group. We did the private tour with 3 adult and 3 teen girls. Kyle was our Captain and he was awesome! He made sure we found dolphins and actually got to swim with them! He then took us snorkeling and showed us the wild life and helped the girls find sand dollars and shells.... More

Saw dolphins, but none while we were in the water. The captain worked pretty hard at finding them. Snorkeled on a small very shallow wreck after we abandoned the dolphin search. Snorkel gear and bottled water provided. Why the low score? Crew was not helpful at all helping the guests get in on out of the water, captains answers to... More

We just took a 2-hour Dolphin Tour and my husband and kids had the time of their lives! With every dive they got to see pods of dolphins with Captain Wes giving great advice of where to swim and when to look down to see dolphins. He was easy-going and professional. Wes also dove for sand dollars, starfish, blowfish, clams,... More

We visited Panama during the 4th of July week and it was awesome. The overall experience was AMAZING. Wes was a GREAT captain and kept us aware of anything happening while on the tour. He was very knowledgeable about the Gulf and animals. While on the tour we saw ALOT of dolphins and got to snorkel. The tour was fantastic.... More

our experience got off to a rough start, boat wouldnt start and we had to wait for it to be fixed. BUT, once we got started it was great. Captain Jaime was amazing and gave us a great experience. We did see many dolphins which was great, although they didnt want their pictures taken, and the kids loved snorkeling and... More

This was a great experience. We had 16 people on our boat which was private. The Kids enjoyed everything about the trip. Swimming with the dolphins was amazing and beautiful. You take your chances on seeing the dolphins and interacting with them. This trip was well worth the money. The boat ride was relaxing and going to shell island and... More

The experience over all was good; our captain was great. We did find dolphins, but they didn't really cooperate for us; they would come up for about 15 seconds and disappear to another spot. It was like a heard of boats and wave runners chasing one pod of dolphins around. I'm not sure why we really ever jumped in...you could... More

Dolphins were elusive and shy - so that part was a bit disappointing. But that is nature and it cannot be controlled. We booked a private tour; no one else offers a private tour for 14 (boat holds 16) Love the snorkeling, exploring the sunken boat and looking for sea creatures. Capt. pulled up some sea creatures for everyone to... More

I have done excursions like this many times in the Caribbean, Alaska, Canada, Bermuda, Mexico and the U.S. so I am comparing this experience to others. First, they don't always answer their phone and their phone mail isn't set up - so it's not easy to get a reservation. When I made the reservation, they asked if my party of... More
